Farrah Franklin Spills New Details On Destiny’s Child Departure: “They Lied”

Published: Friday 27th Nov 2015 by David


15 years have passed since the second version of the R&B group Destiny’s Child was rocked by controversy when its members came forward to claim they had cut ties with the singer Farrah Franklin.

Franklin, along with former Monica backing singer Michelle Williams, had been enlisted to replace members LeToya Luckett and LaTavia Roberson during the promotional run for their sophomore set ‘The Writings on the Wall‘ but was fired after six months.

Management claimed her decision to miss a number of important promotional dates was the reason she was given the boot.

Alas, after the aforementioned Luckett and Roberson faced similar fates, Franklin has revealed that the story many of the group’s fans have believed for over a decade is a lie.

Details below…

In a a new interview with the Hip-Hop platform VLAD TV Farrah says she was being mistreated by the group’s manager Mathew Knowles and decided to leave when his allegedly aggressive nature became too much for her to handle.

Then, allegedly with hopes of avoiding any more of the negative press he had received after parting ways with two of its original members, Knowles is said to have created the story most Destiny’s Child fans have believed up until this point.

Farrah was lazy so Farrah was fired.

Press play to hear her side below…

    • SiberianB November 27, 2015

      This story sounds true tthough.

    • Sommer November 27, 2015

      This chick is so tired and HIGH on drugs. Look at how she’s tipping in and out.

      Then she left/walked out of her hotel (admittedly) and now want to be asked to come back? Bye girl!


    • You tried November 27, 2015

      This story is so ancient why are they still asking her about DC when she never even laid down any VOCALS to any of DCs songs! She was a stand in and lip sang her entire 3to5 months in DC ! If they ever had a reunion with all the ladies I’m sure she won’t be invited! What would be the point????! TGJ you guys are tired and desperate! Nice try though

  2. Rih Rih Royal November 27, 2015

    Beyonce was young so I don’t blame her. Mathew is the evil one here.

    • Arx November 27, 2015

      Omg a Rihanna stan that doesn’t mindlessly hate Beyonce!!! There’s hope for world peace! Thank you Jesus!!!

  3. King Mark111 /.\ November 27, 2015

    Three girls, the first two and this one didn’t even know each other, had the same problem. And fast forward 15 years later, Matt was fired by Mic, Kel and Bey, and stole money from Bey. Cheated on Tina. Serves them right, they knew Matt was evil, but as long as he was mistreating those other girls, it was cool. BUT when he started mistreating Beyonce, because she was the last one left, NOW he’s a bad guy.

    • Miss Omega November 27, 2015

      I imagine it’s pretty hard to believe awful things about your father/father-figure.

      • Miss Omega November 27, 2015

        And you KNOW Matthew covered it up and played the girls against each other, too.

    • Tatiana October 28, 2017

      That is so true I know I’m late on this lol but your right they were all okay with Matthew dbeinf evil towards the other DC girls but when the table’s turned they want to say this and that about him. It’s so funny how you know when someone is evil towards someone and people ride with it but when they do it to you they want to act like he or she is this or that but knowing he or she was evil. If someone is evil and do things to others what will they do too you? Think about it long and hard? It was all about Beyonce, I’m glad she made it because that is one less black woman out here trying to survive but I would have also love to see the other DC members up there with Beyonce because they were all unique talented special just like Beyoncé was.

  4. King Mark111 /.\ November 27, 2015

    And Kelly is the BIGGEST fool out of all of them. Always being a maid and to this day it got her NOWHERE! lol

    • Indie November 27, 2015

      Your pathetic!!!

    • kareem November 27, 2015

      I want you to know that apart from Beyonce, Kelly has the highest net worth of all the girls. So I don’t know what you talking about apart from her music, home girl has watches with TW-Steel in Europe where she is huge than in the Americas, She has deals with Jaguar cars, Dreft, her exercise DVD products and Im sure a few other companies we are yet to hear about, so being a made has not been bad for her after all.

    • Kansas November 27, 2015

      Kelly was practically homeless before the group now she’s worth over $30 million dollars and she still working over 10 yrs after the group ended. She’s far more successful as a solo act than 99% of former girl group members, including all of the ladies of TLC, EnVougue, SWV, etc. Got nowhere my as.

  5. ?Queen Molly? November 27, 2015

    Bye farrah you’re 15 years too late

  6. Bey Sting November 27, 2015

    No lies detected here. Who was dumb enough to believe that the three departees were the ones in the wrong? Beyonce got a taste of her own medicine when he betrayed her in the way he betrayed them and I’m sure she feels bad about it now she’s matured. Dirty rotten man he is.

  7. DIABETES UNBOTHERED November 27, 2015

    Let’s not pretend ’25’ isn’t the reason Riri delayed ‘ANTI” XD. Adele, it is technically your fault lol.

  8. King Mark111 /.\ November 27, 2015

    I bet that other music that she wasn’t allowed to play was TLC. I know it was and Beyonce was the itch in the green dress in that movie. lol

    • ?Queen Molly? November 27, 2015

      Receipts sis?

    • da realest November 27, 2015

      I was thinking the same thing when I was watching the movie, if that girl was playing Beyonce because that’s was the only person I could think of.

    • Kansas November 27, 2015

      If anything it was probably Jagged Edge (due to their presence in the first split). DC has never had an issue with TLC even after TLC threw shade, Kelly was pictured with TBoz and Chilli just last year.

  9. #JACKIE November 27, 2015

    Who cares about this cold 15 year old tea?

    • ?Queen Molly? November 27, 2015

      Who cares about your fav?

      • Music all the way November 27, 2015

        You are actually dragging Ciara????????? WOW!

      • #JACKIE November 27, 2015

        He just wants my attention so bad, but unfortunately I pay him dust like his mother did when she left him in the toilet after birthing him.

  10. King Mark111 /.\ November 27, 2015

    When DC thought they were slick and was clocked by Chili.
    CHILLI THOMAS: “Thank you for acknowledging that because everyone always credits Destiny’s Child as the biggest-selling female group, but it’s just not true. You can’t count album sales for each solo project collectively and come up with numbers. I love Destiny’s Child, but thank you…”

    • Mya November 27, 2015

      If their solo sales weren’t counted in with DC, they would way over 260 million records ww. World Music Awards and Nielsen cooked TLC with those unsold overshipped albums lmao!

      • B November 27, 2015

        lmfaooooo rigggghhhhttt! TLC is counting shipped albums as album sales! truth be told CSC went diamond only due to the fact it SHIPPED 10 MILLION but they didn’t f****** sell 10 million they sold like 8 mili close to 9. Chili and them TLC fans better sit the f*** down. Because DC actually SOLD ALBUMS.

    • Miss Omega November 27, 2015

      Best-girl group album: The Writing’s on the Wall (DC)
      Best catalogue: TLC
      Biggest phenomenon: Spice Girls

  11. brazio November 27, 2015

    Tell it Farrah! I like her

  12. Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans November 27, 2015

    I wish they would treat Slaychelle more like a sister and invite her to anywhere they’re going. I don’t like to see her left out, even though she’s practically just usually at home gardening and enjoying her peace. I would’ve liked to see them all have a friendship like they portrayed in the “Jumpin’, Jumpin'” music video, which still slays lives effortlessly.

    • Mr ? November 27, 2015

      Michele should be in church, not jumping jumping in any club

      • Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans November 27, 2015

        Lol! Y’all keep thinking all she’s about is church, but go look at her Breakfast Club interview and you’ll see the real, raw, authentic her. She’s funny, unbothered by the “Poor Michelle” trolls, PAID AS HELL (executive producing her own show), and she even loves explicit rap/hip Hop music. I’ve never stanned for her so hard like I do now after watching that video. I love Tenetria and her latest album is EVERYTHING! She don’t even need to be up in the clubs, because the clubs (including GAY CLUBS) are playing “Say Yes”.

    • Miss Omega November 27, 2015

      Well in comparison to how long they’ve known each other and what they’ve been through, it just makes sense that Kelly and Beyonce play huge roles in each other’s lives.

  13. MsYonce November 27, 2015

    So wait you trying to tell us that after 3 days Michelle didn’t know you quit the group? Bishhh plz

  14. TraINXBU November 27, 2015

    Old stale tea

  15. scrappie November 27, 2015

    Thats right go after poor pathetic Matthew because you can’t come for Beyonce h**.

  16. DanYiel Iman November 27, 2015

    What’s going on with her #CAREER now? Oh ok *Sips Green Tea* Nsync said it best! Bye Bye BYE…

  17. fatusankoh November 27, 2015

    Another lies forher and the haters gain on hating on queen bey get a life is all the tape you don’t show up to work you are drunk all the time and lazy

  18. Mr ? November 27, 2015

    I felt sorry for her in the last interview clip, but this one just made me think she had a bad B**** attitude…

    Farrah had three while days to reach out to the others and work things out,but she chose not to. Nobody stopped her calling Michelle, or Kelly.

    It all worked out in the end. She wouldn’t have made it to the end, bish.didn’t even pass the probation period.

  19. Kansas November 27, 2015

    A lot of her story made no sense. You left without informing the girls personally that you were quitting the group, they called and asked if you were coming to the shows yall were scheduled for and you said you weren’t, where’s the lie?

    Even if them asking her if she was going to make it was just a front to set up their story about her missing shows (which was unnecessary since its not like the public would know if they actually reached out to her or not), she never speaks on her taking any initiative to try to do everything in her power to get there. If management didn’t reach out to her about the shows, why didn’t she try to contact them about it and let them know that she’s ready and willing to show up, after all she is the one that left, seems like she was waiting for them to come groveling and they kind of had an “if she comes she comes, either way the show must go on” mentality.

    On another note she seems drunk or high on something here.

  20. Dev November 27, 2015

    I interviewer is terrible. He’s so basic and almost juvenile

  21. Miss Omega November 27, 2015

    This sounds believable, but Farrah is also a really weak singer. Their harmonies sounded fuller without her.

    Heck, maybe both stories are true.

  22. .:: Centurion ::. November 27, 2015

    Desperate Child was just a Beybola project. Beybøla would be dead if it wasn’t for the DC foundation and the open family support beams. Tina Knowles was the group’s stylist and Matthew was the manager. There was just favouritism across the board.

    • MsYonce November 27, 2015

      Of course you’re in a Beyonce post. You’re a f****** fannn stop denying

    • Bey Sting November 28, 2015

      You fool. That was because she left before they went. Didn’t you watch the interview? She was never going to go and they knew it so they lied and said she didn’t show up. I love Bey but even I can see this clearly.

  23. wellz November 27, 2015

    So who’s at fault for her failed music career after she left and signed with Fabulous label, or when she tried to put out songs that never took off? If anybody should still be salty it’s Ashley Tamar Davis, who was originally the lead singer until Beyonce outdid her when they first got in the studio, or even Letoya(the trouble maker) or Latavia, they actually put in some work. Farrah came into the group demanding solo’s and then started talking about getting a new manager when she was only there for a couple of months. Not to mention the well documented absence during the last part of TWOTW promo era. Coupled in with the fact that she can’t sing!She deserved to be fired on national television!
    Who says others haven’t profited from being in DC? This is a prime example! Who would even care to interview Farrah if she wasn’t briefly in the group?
    Kelly has done better than 99.8% of the other girl group members when they tried to go solo,Letoya has a platinum album and Michelle is becoming a fixture in gospel. It’s okay if you don’t like Beyonce but to keep spreading misinformed opinion as if it’s fact is wrong. I believe the delusional Aaliyah Stan is Farrah! Hey girl!

  24. What now November 28, 2015

    I was watching this and couldn’t help but think what is wrong with this girl? She seems nervous, anxious, and not there. Her story may be true, but she can’t sing @ all. The original DC4 >>>>>> DC4 & DC3 even though I think DC3 music is better.
